Homemade Salad Dressing So Good You Will Want To Drink It ...

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I am ready for some food on the lighter side! ?Enter this amazing Homemade Salad Dressing. ?It really IS SO GOOD that you will want to drink it, or at least eat more greens than usual, just so you can have it. ?I made this a week ago, and I have wanted a salad every day since.?

?I make it a priority to eat leafy greens everyday no matter what, whether in the form of a smoothie or a salad. ?The amount of nutrients you can get in leafy greens just can't be beat, & this dressing makes it super easy to actually want and look forward to a daily salad.

?This dressing is a breeze to throw together. ?It uses ingredients that most people have on hand. ?The recipe calls for dijon mustard, ?which I didn't have, so I used plain yellow mustard. ?It was still drinkable & delicious!

?{it starts with a base of olive oil & red wine vinegar}

At our local farmers market, there is a booth that I always look forward to. ?She has tiny sample cups of ?salad dressing, and a chunk of bread to soak it up with. ?We love her salad dressing, and I buy a bottle every time we go. ?I have been missing her dressing now that it is fall, but I must tell you, this recipe tastes JUST LIKE hers. ?Even my daughter noticed this when she tasted it. ?Looks like we will be saving some money come Farmer's Market season--or not--now that I have this recipe I will probably need to buy more greens!

?{add seasonings & stir}

This would make a great dipping oil for bread when entertaining, and also a great marinade for chicken or fish. ?It is so much better for you than the salad dressings on the market, most of those are full of preservatives and high fructose corn syrup. ?Blech!

{pour into bottle & shake before using}

?This recipe will be one I use often. ?It has been a week and I'm already out. ?Time to make more! ?Good thing it is an easy recipe.
